the libyan people. >> charlie, will we see a coordination between the fbi and american officials who are coming and the libyan security officials in benghazi? >> reporter: from what we understand from libyan officials we've spoken to, that investigation is already under way. although, interestingly, we didn't see any investigators aat the compound, but yet they are spreading throughout the ben z gazi area. it was a rally, anti-american protest, but largely peaceful. what happened after that seems to have been guided and it wasn't out of anger. this wasn't an anti-american protest that exploded. this seemed to be an attack on the u.s. consulate. >> thank you very much, senior correspondent, john miller, along with chief correspondent lara logan. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do we know about the people behind the attack in benghazi? >> not much. we're in a critical stage of attribution, which is how do we figure out who it was if it wasn't a spontaneous mob? the people who showed up after the demonstrators with the guns, it was much more likely it was an organized group. tw
bringing them inspect the fbi, cia, white house. so the infull traition has been going on for quite awhile. it's serious business. we need a president who is going to be able to take this on and not worry about the political correctness. the reason -- one the huge reasons we're in the mess because president bush and president obama for slightly different reasons, the political correctness aspect has driven a lot of it. we're doing muslim voted reach. it's not a war against islam. we need a president and leadership here who can identify who is the enemy, cho who is the threat how we're going to deal with it. bill oh o rely asked mr. president is the muslim brotherhood a threat to the united states? they are a sworn enemy of the united states. there's a lot of talk about how they renounced violence. that's a temporary measure until they get power. watch what they do in egypt when they have power. if you're a christian in egypt you better your bags and get out now this is curtains for you. so when bill asked ron paul that ask he tap danced. he didn't answer it directly. of course the muslim b
that i am comfortable that the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, the fbi, promptly launched a thorough and searching investigation on the ground in benghazi to learn exactly what happened and what was a chaotic and confusing situation. and i am confident that we continue to have a leadership role in the world as the president laid out today in front of the united nations, rooted in american values, but that will not louis lambist jihadist terrorists to push us out of the region. >> so when you say you're confident in what is happening on the ground, let me put the question directly to you, then. why is that when cnn was in the consulate days after the horrible attack, they found that the -- the diary of ambassador stevens' thoughts and his fears. and not t u.s. investigators. why weren't they the ones who found something like that, which was -- was just lying there? >> that's an excellent question. we did not get briefed on the specifics of cnn's acquisition and use of the private diary of ambassador stevens. that wasn't one of the topics on which we were briefed. that does
is the f.b.i. on this? >> tonight the f.b.i. has a tight lid on the storm they're not commenting on it. a source who works intelligence on cyber attacks told me it would be highly unusual if they were not involved because a major u.s. financial institution was a target. the claimed connection is the you tube clip and services were disrupted for a period. >> shep: thank you. >> you're welcome. >> shep: just outside the u.s. consulate in northwest pakistan, protesters throwing rocks and fire balls at police, we're told. it's the latest in a wave of demonstrations that protesters say is a response to the video which mocks mohammed. a banner being ripped offment riot police firing tear gas into the crowd. a militant group claims it was behind a suicide bombing that killed a dozen people in the afghan capitol and that the attack was also in retaliation for that video. conner powell live in kabul now. conner? >> about a dozen people were on their way to the afghan kabul airport. all employees of air charter solutions this morning when their mini bus was hit by a vehicle packed full of explos
the fbi has a team on the ground in libya to identify suspects, gather evidence and assess whether a prosecution is possible. as fox news was first to report the targeted killing of ambassador coordinated and may be linked to a group called lifg or the libyan fighting islamic group. it was banned by the former dictator muammar qaddafi because of its support for al qaeda. the head of the house intelligence committee is one of few members of congress fully briefed on the attacks and the investigation. >> even though we can't say for sure this was an al qaeda event yet it certainly fits the profile, it fits the signature, the precision, the way that they carried out this particular attack, certainly would make it likely that it is an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> reporter: this morning the libyan foreign ministry saying that they believe a group called ansar al sharia was involved. they support the extremist goal of imposing strict sharia law in that country. jenna: ongoinging investigation as we learn more about libya. what about cairo? what are we learning about the investiga
of treating it like it's a "law & order" issue, rather than a war on terrorism. they have sent the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point becau
and until the f.b.i. identified everyone involved and in the custody of the united states. this is while our foreign policy would be determined by half a dozen unruly people anywhere in the world. i've seen unworkable and unwise legislation before. this may win the prize. it would be a colossal waste of f.b.i. resources be impossible to implement and those in this country who believe in freedom of speech are we really going to fill up our prison with thousands of foreigners including those who engage in peaceful demonstrations because it includes them. are we really going to cut off aid to the government of egypt which has reaffirmed its peace agreement with israel, sent troops against the egyptian extremists in the sinai deploy police to protect the u.s. embassy and is negotiating an agreement to reform its economy. are we also going to cut off aid to israel, which we do, of course. so mr. president i ask my full statement be placed in the record. like so many republicans and democrats who have spoken against this, it makes no sense. the presiding officer: without objection, the full statem
